Museum curator starts talk show
Something new is coming up! Do you own a home radio? If not, get one because I’m starting a new radio talk show. It’s the “Lois Swanee Talk Show” which will be on your dial at 1110 AM on WKRA on Thursdays from 2 p.m. until 3 p.m. It will be a purely local show featuring people, music, community announcements, a little dab of weather, and asking you to call in and discuss whatever issues you have on your mind; it will be fun! The Marshall County Historical Museum will be the main sponsor.
WKRA was our first radio station way back in 1966 and we were so proud of it! It’s been enduring for over four decades.
I remember growing up on College Avenue when I was a child; we had a radio in the living room. On Sunday mornings, I would run out and get The Commercial Appeal, bring it in and fish out the funny papers. I spread them on the floor and at 8 a.m., Mayor LaGuardia of New York City would read me and all the other children in America the funny papers. That hooked me on newspapers forever and I’m still hooked, especially The South Reporter, which is indispensable in my week, it is so great. It hooked me to be a radio fan, too.
I remember on December 7, 1941, when that terrible news came over the airwaves informing the world that the Japanese had attacked Pearl Harbor and we wondered where in the world Pearl Harbor was, as we had never heard of it before. It was an earth-shaking event. At school we sang a song “You’re a Sap, Mr. Jap!” and everybody was very patriotic.
Radios were all we had during World War II and they were extremely useful and used in the war on all sides. There was an American girl (or she sounded like it) called “Axis Sally”, who aimed terrible propaganda to our American troops trying to psychologically do the boys in. Another was in the Pacific War Zone calling herself “Tokyo Rose.” That was bad radio. Radio was so amazing, with a flick of the wrist you could have a fifty-piece orchestra playing in your kitchen, or you could have a boxing match with world champion Joe Lewis, or you could sit by the fire and have a chat with Franklin Delano Roosevelt. At that time radio was the greatest invention. It was invented about 1895 (by Marconi?) but we first knew it in 1927.
Watch out for your credit, your good credit rating and your good name. About ten years ago, someone stole my identity. When I was getting ready to buy something; I was shocked to learn that they said I had borrowed thousands of dollars in Delaware and hadn’t paid any of it back on the credit card. I had to hire a lawyer to get it straightened out and that took awhile and money. Don’t hand out your Social Security number to anyone. Don’t be careless with your business cards, including driver’s license. Don’t own more than one credit card, unless you are a mathematical genius. Sometimes the “cheaty” cards will charge you 33% interest if you don’t watch them. Don’t ever trust them completely. On credit cards, don’t buy whatever it is that is tempting you to buy unless you really need it. Just shake your head from side to side and the urge to buy and spend your hard earned money will go away. Credit card companies make their living on the hope that you owe so much and with them double compounding the interest and you never in your life will be able to get all that paid back.
It’s like borrowing money at the bank and you can count on the fact that you will have to pay everything you borrow back to the bank, plus a little and sometimes a lot, more. It can ruin your life, not to mention your credit history. If you can’t survive without a credit card, change your ways.
